Plan to join the dialogue and educational opportunity with Sue Linderman. Sue says that "I’ve had a lifelong interest in history and was a Political Science/History major in college, yet I didn’t discover until 3-4 years ago that I was missing a significant portion of our country’s history. In my experience, American history classes stopped with the Civil War and a bit of Reconstruction, with those darn carpetbaggers, and picked up again sometime after WWII. Much of the racial turmoil in our country today can be traced directly to elements of our history, even before the founding of the United States. Many of the racial stereotypes we hear – or hold – are a direct consequence of intentional economic and public policy. Understanding this history gives us a foundation for action to address the profound inequities that exist in our society today."
